Kendall Jenner has opened up to Allure about her self-esteem issues surrounding her acne and skincare routine since she was 14-years-old.

She only revealed to the world last month that she is a long-time sufferer of the skin condition which plagues mainly young teens around the world.

Taking to Instagram back in January, she wrote to her fans; "While there are much bigger problems happening in the world, suffering from acne for me was debilitating. It’s something that I’ve dealt with since I was a young teen and has caused me to feel anxious, helpless and insecure."

She continued; "As humans, I don’t think we share our insecurities enough because we live in a time where being “perfect” is the standard. We curate our life online and pick the pretty moments to post. I’d like to show a younger generation that not everything is perfect."

Jenner's goal is to create a conversation surrounding image and insecurity; "I didn’t think I’d see the day where I would feel confident posting a makeup free picture. My goal is to open up a dialogue around skin positivity.

Now, she has stated that the online haters as well as her acne has made her cry for days in the past. We've all had a bit of a sob when a massive spot surfaces on the exact day you have an important event on, it's so cruel.

She revealed more about her young life to Allure;

"I've always struggled with a bit of acne since I was around 14. It killed a lot of self-esteem and I had to really work past that." She is also a person who detests when her pimples are pointed out to her, as we all are.

A break-out at the Golden Globes caused her endless stress, saying, "I was feeling good about myself, and then when people say mean things I'm like, 'I know I have a zit. I know I'm breaking out. You guys don't have to keep pointing it out. I obviously see that, but let me live.'"

Those people are legit the worst. Rude, much?

She admitted; 

"I have cried endlessly for days because of things people have said to me, and I've had to become stronger through it. I mean, don't get me wrong: I am not superhuman. I definitely feel, and the things people say online are very hurtful."

We're happy for her that she's found a great skincare routine that works for her, and is starting the conversation. Young women are under such pressure to look picture perfect 24 hours a day.

All eyes were on Kendall Jenner's Twitter page this evening as her millions of fans awaited a well hyped announcement from the reality TV star. 

Momager Kris Jenner took to Twitter yesterday to share a video of Kendall discussing her 'most raw story' with the world, teasing the clip and encouraging people to tune into Kendall's Twitter tonight. 

'Make sure to watch @KendallJenner’s Twitter on Sunday night to find out what I’m talking about and be prepared to be moved,' she wrote.

'I’m so proud of my darling @KendallJenner for being so brave and vulnerable.'

'Seeing you share her most raw story in order to make a positive impact for so many people and help foster a positive dialogue is a testament to the incredible woman you’ve become.'

Kendall's announcement turned out to be a sponsorship with acne treatment company Proactiv. 

The model revealed that after images of her were released following walking the red carpet at the Golden Globes when she was 21 made her feel even more insecure about her acne, she decided to try the brand. 

Proactiv is well known for it's infomercials featuring celebrities such as Jessica Simpson, Katy Perry and Lindsay Lohan. 

'After the Globes, when Proactiv asked if I’d like to try their products, I thought, ‘You know what, I may as well give it a shot, I’m desperate,' she told Vogue. 

However, fans are giving Kendal mixed feedback to her announcement. 'Everyone gets pimples so….. what's the brave story sis,' tweeted one.

Most seem disappointed that Kendall's hyped reveal is a brand ambassadorship, but it will certainly be empowering for young people to hear a powerhouse like Kendall Jenner discuss how struggling with acne impacted her life.
